Default Yay for a new job!

So i just put my notice in on my current job and I couldnt be happier. Worked there for a year and a half after being unemployed for months. I didnt want the job to begin with but it was the highest paying job I could find.

Recently I found a VERY nice man who is willing to train me in cabinetmaking. He is paying me exactly what I make now except my schedule and drive are much much better.

PROS:
Dont have a 45 min - 2 hour drive to work (now its about 15-20 mins with traffic)
Dont have a randomly made up schedule that I have NO control over (now I work 8-4:30 m-f)
Dont have to deal with any people except the other workers (which I dont have to like, I just have to be civil with)
I get to learn something new and something I can always do, I love working with my hands and Ive been looking for a job that lets me build/design/create forever, this is my chance!

CONS:
I dont get to hang out with my friends at work,.... a small price to pay now I can see them after work!

Woot, yay for me! Anyone know anything about cabinetmaking? lol

No. But whenever I hire someone to do it for me at work everybody loves what the outcome looks like

Congrats Chris, and I wish you the best.

Yea for Chris! You'll be working with wood and saws and glue.

Don't handle the finished wood more than necessary (oils from the skin get on it and need to be resanded)
Don't jimmy-rig the guards on the saws - they keep your fingers attached to your hands
Don't sniff the glue - for obvious reasons.



I think the reduction in communte time will be the best perk about the job!
